Still no new progress this month due to the continuance of the Pandemic.  We are pleased to tell you that our core action team remains safe and in good health.  We are thankful for this and hope the same is true for each of our readers and alumni.

While further action is at a current stand still, please remember that the Memorial is complete and can be viewed by anyone visiting the Memorial Gardens located on the south side of the Jerusalem Avenue Middle School.
Our update for June appears in the Honoring Our Veterans section of this newsletter.
This project will be officially completed once we are able to conduct an official Dedication Ceremony at the Memorial.  While we haven't been able to report on new donations since the end of February with Bill Walden still in South Carolina, if you have sent a donation and your check has yet to clear, it's simply because Bill has not been able to deposit it in our account.
We expect to be able to update our donation status for the August 1st issue of HixNews.  New donations are still welcome to help defray Dedication Ceremony and future Memorial maintenance costs.  Details on making a donation appear in the Update.
We trust all readers are staying safe at this difficult time.  As always, should you wish to make any comments on the Update, please email me at
On behalf of the Project Team,
Joe Carfora

Each month, we profile a former student that has submitted a biographical sketch of their life. This month we have highlighted Howard F. Zuckerman from the class of 1961. Many of you have not used the opportunity of sharing precious moments with other classmates. Itís not too late to submit a sketch to be included in the Alumni Bio Section (click the link on the left to go to the bios section) of the newsletter. We are including a writeable document that you can fill in on you computer and, after completing the document, forward to


Note the new date. Everything else stays the same.
